BFG Launches New 8800GT and 9600GT OCX ThermoIntelligence Graphics Cards


Today BFG has introduced two new graphics cards into their ThermoIntelligence lineup: the 8800GT OCX TI and the 9600GT OCX TI. These cards join the 8600GTS and 8600GT as part of the ThermoIntelligence family which all boast some impressive overclocks while maintaining decreased temperatures over the stock cards.

How does BFG do this? Well, they have installed aftermarket heatsinks on both of these cards which not only dissipate heat quicker than their stock-clocked cousins but also do so at decreased noise levels. BFG has set up a good-looking little mini site for all of their custom cards which can be found here: www.thermointelligence.com.

Since both of these cards are launching the moment you read this, you should expect your favorite e-tailers to have them available shortly after launch.

We here at Hardware Canucks will have our review of BOTH these products up as soon as possible and judging from the clock speeds we will see below, these look to be some very interesting cards.

MSRP / projected street prices are as follows in USD:

9600GT OCX TI: $219 (MSRP) / $175 (street)

8800GT OCX TI: $269 (MSRP) / $210 (street)


Please find all the specifications for the cards in the section below.
